Shaping the future of esthetics
Kuraray began to develop dental products in the 1970s. Today we are recognized as an innovator in the research and development of dental products that simplify everyday dental procedures while delivering first-class, lasting results.
In April 2012, Kuraray Medical Inc. and Noritake Dental Supply co., Ltd. joined forces to become Kuraray Noritake Dental Inc. With the merger of these two multinational companies, Kuraray Noritake Dental was born.
The company now benefits from an exceptional know-how in organic and inorganic chemistry. With its combined expertise, Kuraray Noritake Dental is now moving forward to develop further high-end dental products – from ceramics to composites and even bio-materials.

INVENTOR OF MDP: THE CORE INGREDIENT OF MODERN BONDING
Kuraray Noritake Dental is constantly creating ever-more sophisticated and innovative products. Back in 1981 we invented the 10-methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate – commonly known as MDP, the adhesive monomer which achieves a durable bonding with enamel, dentin, metal and metal oxides. To this day no other monomer has been able to improve on the performance of the original product which is a major component in CLEARFIL bondings and PANAVIA cements.
